"And She Laid Him in a Manger"

I used another Cricut cartridge in making this card: December 25th. I love the pretty design this cartridge made on the lower part of the manger. The cutout was made from red vinyl, and later sprayed with red glitter mist (Krylon) for some extra embellishment. This is really a CAS card, and was so easy to make. The background is a piece of white cardstock run through a Darice (Snowflakes) EF. The raised flakes were glued, then sprinkled with iridescent glitter. The finishing touch is a red and white polka dot bow at the bottom.

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
